No: Since you also require Abilify (aripiprazole) keep you mood up , you are experiencing significant difficulties at the serotonin receptor sites in your brain. It would be unwise to add in even one drink of alcohol because it has a significant ability to displace or dislodge medications that bind to serotonin receptor sites and this could lead to a relapse.
